At the heart of our work is the freedom and expression of the performance of creation, the raw energy of instantaneous thought and feeling. The sculptural qualities of our works are born from the desires of instinct, reality, authenticity. They are a record of an energetic moment, aftermath, disruption, the creation of a subconscious collage. The works have an urge to connect, both with their surroundings in terms of form and reflection, both inwards and outwards, and demand the immediate attention of an audience. An audience who, as with the Rorschach ink blot, is given the power to perceive their own ideas in the abstractions they are presented with. The works have an extreme precision of task within their bodies which at first glance may have appeared haphazard or inconclusive. They are in fact neither. In their baroque simplicity they are truly inclusive, collaborative. They are yours. They are what you desire, want and need.
Gieves and Hawkes acquired several new works by Fredrikson Stallard to underline their newly refurbished flagship store at No.1 Savile Row in London, including one Hurricane mirror above the fireplace of the famous William Kent Room, and a second piece crowning the fireplace in the splendour of the bespoke tailoring room.
